    Police Officer, Samuel Battle and the Shattering of the Color Line in New York

    in Education

    The Gist of Freedom is pleased to welcome Arthur Browne, author of One Righteous Man:Samuel Battle and the Shattering of the Color Line in New York!


    In this Sept. 4, 1941 file photo, Lt. Samuel Battle gets a kiss from his 4-year-old granddaughter, Yvonne, at City Hall, where he was sworn in as the city's first black parole commissioner.  AP Photo, File


    In his latest book, Browne — who currently serves as the Daily News editorial page editor — presents a biography of New York City’s first African-American police officer. Based on an unfinished manuscript by Langston Hughes and Browne’s own research, “One Righteous Man” tells the story of Samuel Battle’s groundbreaking rise through the ranks of the NYPD, a decades-long odyssey that is both the story of one man’s unwavering dedication to racial progress and a harbinger of the divisions between police and the communities they serve that plague America today.

    Sam and Caroline discuss the history behind Drakelow Tunnels

    in Paranormal

    Drakelow Tunnels are a former Top Secret underground military complex beneath Kingsford Country Park north of Kidderminster, Worcestershire. The tunnels were built between 1941-1942 as a Shadow Factory for the Rover car company. Parts for aircraft engines were machined in the 3.5 miles of tunnels throughout WWII. After WWII the tunnels began producing parts for tank engines until 1958 when the tunnels were handed over to the Ministry of Supply, and later Ministry of Works.


    In 1961 the British Government converted half of the tunnels into a top secret facility, designated: Regional Seat of Goverment 9 (R.S.G. 9). Drakelow, along with 12 other facilities scattered across the U.K. formed a national network of highly classified Nuclear Bunkers, that the British Goverment would operate the country from, in the event of Nuclear War.


    In 1980, Drakelow was re-designated: Regional Government Headquarters 9.2 (R.G.H.Q. 9.2). The tunnels were also upgraded and Blast Doors and Air Locks installed to bring the complex upto full Nuclear Bunker status. Through out the 1980's Drakelow operated under complete secracy until the end of the Cold War in 1990. In 1993, the Ministry of Defence deemed the facility surplus to requirements, and the entire complex was decommissioned and sold.


    Since 1993, the Drakelow Tunnels Preservation Trust, have been restoring the entire complex to its original condition to become the largest Cold War Museum in the UK. It also the largest underground space in the UK open to the general public.

    Salute to the Tuskegee Airmen of the Virgin Islands

    in Culture

    Despite adversity and limited opportunities, African Americans have played a significant role in US military history over the past 300 years. They were denied military leadership roles and skilled training because many believed they lacked qualifications for combat duty. Before 1940, African Americans were barred from flying for the US military. Civil rights organizations and the black press exerted pressure that resulted in the formation of an all African-American pursuit squadron based in Tuskegee, Alabama, in 1941. They became known as the Tuskegee Airmen.


    The military selected Tuskegee Institute to train pilots because of its commitment to aeronautical training. Tuskegee had the facilities, and engineering and technical instructors, and climate for year-round flying. The first Civilian Pilot Training Program students completed their instruction in May 1940. The Tuskegee program was then expanded and became the center for African-American aviation during World War II.


    The Tuskegee Airmen overcame segregation and prejudice to become one of the most highly respected fighter groups of World War II. They proved conclusively that African Americans could fly and maintain sophisticated combat aircraft. The Tuskegee Airmen’s achievements, together with the men and women who supported them, paved the way for full integration of the US military. 


    Nov. 6, 1998, President Clinton approved Public Law 105-355, which established the Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site at Moton Field in Tuskegee, Alabama, to commemorate and interpret the heroic actions of the Tuskegee Airmen during World War II. The site contains a museum and interpretive programs at Moton Field and a national center.


    Salute to the sons of the US Virgin Islands: Henry E. Rohlsen and Herbert Heywood, The Tuskegee in Paradise, and to the newsletter about them of the same name.
